9781580052061: Getting Unstuck Without Coming Unglued: A Woman's Guide to Unblocking Creativity

We've all been there. The words just won't come out right, or at all. We get halfway into a creative project and then unexpectedly run out of steam. We get nervous about something we're passionate about and put down the paintbrush or turn off the computer.
Getting Unstuck Without Coming Unglued is about understanding blocks in the creative process and getting to the bottom of what causes them.
Author Susan O'Doherty, a psychotherapist specializing in helping artists of all sorts get unstuck, says that many of the things that block us are gender-specific: women's fear of success; competing in male-dominated fields; the stress of trying to do serious creative work while holding down a job and, often, caring for a family. Procrastination, a problem for women and men, also gets its due. With the proper tools, however, she assures us that we can regain control over our creative lives.
This practical and accessible guide uses case studies from O'Doherty's practice, straightforward advice, and helpful exercises to help women nurture their creativity.

Review:

"With exercises at the end of each chapter, Getting Unstuck Without Coming Unglued: A Woman's Guide to Unblocking Creativity probes the forces that may be holding you back -- be they negative messages from parents, society or even your own dark side...O'Doherty's thoughtful chapters on blending creativity with motherhood or aging may resonate with those whose right-brain longings have been stuck on the back burner." -- The Washington Post
